  • 2017 Church Budget Commitment Walk

    Last Sunday morning, Pastor Blake shared that the church staff and deacons have committed $671,254 or 22% of the $2,989,000 budget that we adopted on Wednesday, December 14, 2016. You can demonstrate your commitment to the 2017 budget through the “Stewardship Commitment Walk” at the conclusion of Sunday’s Worship Service.

    If you have not already completed your commitment card, please do so during the Worship Service using the commitment card in the morning bulletin. At the conclusion of the service, Pastor Blake will invite you to demonstrate your commitment by coming forward and placing your card on the tables or the stage at the front of the Sanctuary. You will be joining other EFBC members who have prayerfully committed themselves to follow God’s word in the area of giving. We hope this will be a memorable worship experience for you and your family.

    Together, we can GIVE PASSIONATELY and exceed our 2017 budget. The total of commitments received will be announced at the conclusion of the Worship Service on Sunday, January 22.
